I finally made it out of my artist’s block!
I was snowed in this weekend (and nursing a concussion I got snowboarding in Utah earlier this week) so naturally I sat down and stared at a canvass until something happened. If I can’t be playing in this epic snowfall, I might as well paint an ideal snowscape and escape mentally.
The main goal with this piece was to capture movement with a static environment. The brush strokes were done in a way to imitate the route and turns a skiier/rider would be taking so even though I couldn’t physically be snowboarding, my brain and hand were.
